Polka Time

Well, I’m back in Hawaii for the Summer! I’m going through London withdrawals, but it is nice to be back home for a bit. The best part about being back has got to be my puppy, although she’s not very puppy-sized any more! I’ve been trying to get a good picture of her, but she’s notoriously camera-shy. And she’s far too wiggly to hold still long enough to focus on. I’ve already managed to get a bit of a sun-burn– clearly I’m not used to sunshine! Other than getting burnt and playing with my mutts, I’ve been busy applying for internships. So far, so good; but more about that later– I wouldn’t want to jinx it!

I got this dress at the Battersea Boot sale a couple of weeks ago in anticipation of spring. Now that I’m back in Hawaii, it finally feels appropriate to wear it. I love wearing clothes that I bought on my travels– a better souvenir, for sure, than something out of a tacky tourist shop. And I’m wearing yet another hat– I can’t seem to get dressed without adding a chapeau. Maybe I’ll make it my signature look?
